my featherweight

this is my featherweight that I am sewing on
a 221 that I bought at a quilt show
she sews nicely
but every now and then 
her bottom tension goes a little nuts

she has purty decals

and this kind of plate

does anyone else have a featherweight?
I need to get bobbins for her
the ones I bought wont fit........I dont have a book for her
so it is a guessing game

but at least I can sew!


  1. This site has free PDF manuals for your featherweight along with other things for your featherweight. They are such nice machines!


  2. What a treasure. I do not have a featherweight but I do have a Singer breadbox and a Consew treadle. :)

  3. I have some extra bobbins. I order them by the box. I will get you some in the mail the next day or two.

  4. I have one with the same plate. I work on mine . their is a facebook site that has videos to show you how to fix them. it think the site is featherweight sewing machines. It's run by Carman Henry , at least I think that's his last name. when mine quit running I used one of his videos to found a tiny piece of thread inside it
